Why ICEERS Exists
ICEERS is dedicated to marshal the forces of the ethnobotanical knowledge of the indigenous peoples and modern therapeutic practice, responding to the urgent need for efficient tools for personal and social development.
For thousands of years, indigenous and pre-industrial societies mastered special plant species, known for its psychoactive properties, through religious and ritual use, to address medical, psychological and social issues critical to social relations and survival. The importance and scope of these plant species for the human family, as tools for personal and social development, cannot be overstated.
From this perspective ICEERS works towards the acceptation and integration of these ethnobotanical tools in contemporary society on three levels: Education - Scientific Research - Service
